My Name is Mr Griffith , I am a native New Yorker I am from the Borough Brooklyn a member of our Lady at Charities in WeeksVille community in Brooklyn. I've always been volunteering and helping peoples all my life I have a background working with children and my passion is photography I had work at the Brooklyn D A office with children from different diversity background . I truly believe in give back and with the skills that I have I know I can be a great asset working with the team.

Friendly relaxed atmosphere, however very non-conforming to etiquette introductions. More team camaraderie practices might prove helpful for a volunteer: (1) All volunteers should be introduced. I was not introduced to anyone. So I did not know who was who; There were 4 other volunteers. I was only told you can work with so-and-so. (2) All volunteer's should be orientated to the facility (ie bathrooms, water fountain, kitchen organization, work expectations, breaks, etc). Make a guest feel comfortable and minimize the tension one may feels in being in a new place; Allow a valued guest to feel like "mi casa eas tu casa". :-) Despite the lacking etiquette, the people were authentically friendly. In the end, the supervising person did thank me for coming, and invited me to come again. I would volunteer again.

I volunteered here throughout the entire 2015-16 school year. It was extremely rewarding and enjoyable. This is a great organization to volunteer at and I'm so lucky I found them.
